Ca: Interior Health completes investigation into information breach

Greg Fry reports:

KAMLOOPS — Interior Health has completed a comprehensive review of a privacy breach made public in September.

The breach involved the personal information of about 500 current and former employees. There was no evidence of further breaches.


“The review, which spanned two months, was unable to determine how the breach occurred, or whether the information was accessed by an individual or individuals or external to IH,” said IH in a statement. “It was, however, able to identify a likely time frame of December 2009 when unknown access to an IH employee database appears to have occurred.”

    “As a result, IH is urging current and former employees working with the health authority during this time to take extra precautions with their personal information, including credit card and passwords, and to avoid carrying more identification than needed such as social insurance numbers or passports.”

    During *what* time? I think they meant to say “forever” since your identity doesn’t exactly expire over time.

    What does “avoid carrying more identification than needed” even mean???
